About Tom

After more than 15 years in the Boston and Metro West tech industry (started in semi and telecom, last several years in software led to burnout) I started a one man show marketing company in 2016. Later that year I acquired a minor league professional basketball team (really. It's a lot of fun).

During my recruiting career I was the only person in my function for the last several years before successful exits at two different startups in optical telecom over a 7 year span. I worked the consulting side for about 3 years thereafter before spending the last several years in agency life.

I really like starting things and did so on the side from my recruiting work many times over the years. Perpetually starting new things is not a way to sustain success or to live a life of a human.

I started Rising Arc to help other people start or advance their things at early stages. My system is centered around leveraging technology to magnify brand and lead generation across the breadth of digital presence. I also work with businesses on the selection and implementation of the right tools for their business that will maximize long term value of leads and the customer experiences they deliver.


Constant iteration, smart experimentation and Agile everything all the time - Me
